    Default Scenic Rx-4 Nudge Bar?

    A few years back, I remember seeing that there was a supplier for these in our great land.
    Do you think I could remember who it was. Not that they'd still sell them new I am thinking.
    I've bought myself a fishing Kayak and really need something more sturdy than the plastic pretend nudge bar Renault fitted to them
    Dave C, have you got any on the wrecks in your yard?

    If you mean something like this, I think it wouldn't add any more strength than the original. My suggestion would be to take your towing adaptor out of the boot and fit it into it's threaded socket behind the lower grille. (Can't remember which side now!) That should give you something fairly hearty to attach your tie-down to!

    Hey Kim.
    Actually, that would be just the thing.
    The front and rear tie downs are only for stability in cornering or cross winds. The main straps tied to the roof racks are what holds the kayak down to the car.
    Thanks though, gives me something to use as a reference,

    I found this one online...exactly what I am after....doubt there are too many left

    It has 3 mounting points - 2 at the bottom and one at the top.

    In the photo above, the nudge bar looks like it bolts directly to the factory plastic one?
    Is this right, or is it removed for actual fitting?
    I know that sounds silly but the reason I need the nudge bar to have more strength is that it is the front anchoring point for the kayak and has to hold a 35kg kayak at 100km/h on the highway at times.
    It's held by 2 over the roof rack straps too but the front point has to be secure as well.
